The Shure DMK57-52 Drum Mic Kit is a conveniently packaged selection of microphones and mounts, designed to offer a complete core package of microphones for recording and performing drummers at a great price.
The industry standard for snare drum, and a reliable and high-performing choice for toms, the cardioid dynamic Shure SM57 microphone features a contoured frequency response that cuts through the mix with exceptional impact, while reproducing sound accurately.
Perfect for the kick drum, the supercardioid Shure Beta 52 derives its low-end punch and sonic presence from a carefully tailored frequency response. Equipped with its own pneumatic shock mount, the Beta 52 is additionally designed with an integral locking stand mount for quick-and-easy set up.
A key element of the kit, Shure's A56D universal drum mounting system can be used to position microphones virtually anywhere -- on drum rims, microphone stands, even cymbal stands. Designed with captive parts to prevent the loss of individual pieces, the A56D is small, secure, and can be used with any standard microphone, making it a great tool for both stage and studio environments.

What We Think
The Shure DMK57-52 Drum Microphone Kit is, without a doubt, one of the best deals in pro-audio. Add up the components - you'll pay over $615 if you purchase them separately. As part of the bundle, you'll save over $215 AND get the case. That, my friends, is what we call a 'stupid-good-deal.' The Shure Beta 52 Kick Drum Microphone provides a very solid and good presentation of the kick drum with plenty of low-end power and just the right amount of low end 'woof' to put a smile on your face. The SM57s work very well for both rack toms and even floor toms on-stage, though you may want to find deeper reaching mics in the studio. Still, you can never have too many SM57s in your old kit bag. Let us not forget that those SM57s are pretty much considered a necessity on electric guitar amps, instrument mics for bluegrass bands on-stage, and is widely regarded as THE standard for snare drum microphones for both stage and studio. What really sold me on the kit are the A56D drum mounts. They are very solid, all metal mounts that do very well to grip upon rims. Floating hardware is always a problem for any mounting system and for the A56D there is no exception. But, in 85% of situations, the A56D mounts are going to provide you with a better and more solid mounting system for the longer SM57 than you will find in other mounts. The carrying case is sufficiently rugged, making for a total package that's tough to beat at any price - let alone this one."
